Over the past year, there has been a sharp increase in threatening email communications and social media posts. When combined with the recent rise in worry, stress, and frustration from students, faculty and staff with the COVID-19 crisis, there is a need for a straightforward process to triage these concerns. Looking Glass is an easy to learn expert system designed to assess online and written content. This approach to evaluating online communications, written narratives and social media posts is a must-have supplemental to your existing violence risk and threat assessment process. Based on research from their upcoming book by Taylor and Francis, An Educator’s Guide to Assessing Threats in Student Writing: Social Media, Email, and other Narrative, the presenters will share this effective and efficacious approach with you and discuss how to asses threat through the psychological, criminal, student conduct and legal perspectives. During the session, we will teach the scoring of the system and demonstrate through three new cases how to apply the measure.
